Campolo Scholars Forum with Dr. Jonathan Yonan
March 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Walton Hall Prayer Chapel and Via Zoom
Ordering My Life, Ordering My Loves
A motto of Palmer Theological Seminary of Eastern University has been: “The whole gospel, for the whole world, through whole persons.” But what makes a whole person? And what role does the Christian Academy and the Church have in forming whole persons? Dr. Jonathan Yonan will address the challenges and importance of syncing the head and the heart; of cultivating the mind and the faith. He will share practices and disciplines for engaging in intellectual pursuits while not sacrificing or neglecting faith. Together, we will consider how each are important and should be integrated.
The Campolo Scholars Forum is made possible with generous gifts from the Baugh Family Foundation and FBC of Philadelphia.
